Reminders

 

May 16, 2024:

Some friendly reminders:

  • Parents, our lost and found is GROWING!  Please ask your children to look through it to see if anything belongs to them.  It would be very helpful if items were labeled. A table full of the items is set up in the hallway outside the office.  Feel free to stop in and look.

  • The Washington Environmental Council has supplied WPS with a bin to recycle certain art supplies.  If you have broken crayons/markers, please send them in with your child.  The bin is in the art room.

  • Keri Snowden, our new Director of Teaching, Learning and Assessment, is hosting a Parent/guardian Zoom meeting  on Tuesday, June 4th, 6:30-7:30 pm.  This will include her introduction and her initial plans for working toward meeting the goals of the Region 12 Strategic Plan.  There will also be time for questions from the audience.  Here is the Zoom link:

Algunos recordatorios amistosos:

  • ¡Padres, nuestros objetos perdidos y encontrados están CRECIENDO! Pídale a sus hijos que lo revisen para ver si algo les pertenece. Sería muy útil si los artículos estuvieran etiquetados. Para ver objetos perdidos y encontrados, consulte el folleto a continuación.

  • El Consejo Ambiental de Washington ha proporcionado a WPS un contenedor para reciclar ciertos materiales de arte. Si tiene crayones/marcadores rotos, envíelos con su hijo. El contenedor está en la sala de arte.

  • Keri Snowden, nuestra nueva Directora de Enseñanza, Aprendizaje y Evaluación, organizará una reunión Zoom para padres/tutores el martes 4 de junio de 6:30 a 7:30 p.m. Esto incluirá su introducción y sus planes iniciales para trabajar hacia el cumplimiento de las metas del Plan Estratégico de la Región 12.

Dear Connecticut High School Student,

UHart's School of Communication invites you to apply for admission to a free, two-week summer day program, Be the Changeto learn about digital storytelling and media literacy. Sponsored by Impact Teen Drivers and the University of Hartford, the program is being held at the University from July 8–19, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the School of Communication’s classrooms and production studios. 

 

APPLY BY THE JUNE 1 DEADLINE!

You will take part in hands-on workshops in video production and hear from guest speakers, including successful media professionals and our partners at Impact Teen Drivers and FOX61. You'll also create your own live TV show in the studio and short videos about issues that are important to you. 

Participants will learn:

  • The basics of video production in a TV studio and on location
  • Creative digital storytelling
  • The role of media in a democracy
  • The creation of TV and video news, and public service announcements 
  • Media activism, and the importance of media literacy

On the last day, there will be a public showing of student work and presentation of certificates of completion for participants. 

How to Apply

There is a competitive selection process for students based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, and an essay where applicants are asked to discuss issues that are important to them based on their experiences, and how they could make use of media to call attention to these issues to improve people’s lives. 

This is a great opportunity for you to explore your interest in digital media and communication. Attendance is valued at $2,000 per student, but is free of charge for participants, due to the generous donation of Impact Teen Drivers and thanks to the continued support of NJM Insurance Group.

A link to the application form and more information about the program is available here.
